    Floral prints never go out of style

    Floral prints and summer go hand in hand.  They are a timeless trend that never really goes away. Trends and clothing are like a revolving door. The styles come in and go out, then come around again in a little different way. Floral prints are the trend that you can always count on. Guaranteed if you buy a floral print this summer, 3 summers from now it will still be wearable.  There is a reason for this.  Florals are featured at most of the important events in our lives.  They remind us of these happy times such as weddings, birthdays, and other special occasions. Memories can bring on a little nostalgia.…

    Casual chic with pajama pants

    Casual chic just got a whole lot chicer. Who doesn’t like the feel of silk next to their skin? It’s soft, light weight, and so luxe looking. Introducing the pajama pants. The next level elevated in casual style.  You may look at these and think twice. Are they really made to be worn in public? The answer is a loud yes! Let’s not get carried away and actually wear them to bed, wake up the next morning, and head out the door. Although you may want to. The pajama pants are a cleaner and chicer alternative to yoga pants. They have the same comfortable and casual feel. But pajama pants…

    Iconic Black & White

      Black and white is such an iconic pairing.  The bold contrast makes a classic yet powerful statement. It is the epitome of French girl chic. Always in fashion without too much fuss.  The first image that pops into my mind when I think of a classic black and white outfit is brunching on the Italian coast in my sunglasses.  Doesn’t everyone think of that? Black and white can be incorporated into your wardrobe in so many ways.  One fun option is with polka dots.  Another timeless classic, polka dots have been on the fashion scene forever.  Think Marilyn Monroe in her famous circa 1950’s swimsuit.  Each decade has had a…

    The Statement Skirt

    How many times have you browsed your favorite shopping sites and found those “statement” pieces only to find yourself saying- where will I wear that?  Or, can I pull that off?  That happens to me very often. I’m always drawn to the more unique pieces whether it’s the fabric, print, color combinations, or cut. You know those pieces that hook you in.  You keep coming back to them, adding them to cart and just admiring. That’s what happened to me with this skirt from Viva Aviva. I kept going back to it. I was so drawn to the color, the ruffles, and the asymmetrical cut. I keep thinking- where will…

    The White Top

    Summer is closely upon us (finally!).  It’s time to start getting out the shorts and summer essentials.  The main summer essential for me is always a white top.  White tops are a summer staple. Just about every brand had its own version. But let’s face it, in the sea of white tops available, it’s actually hard to find one that suits. They are either too sheer, too boxy, too stiff, too something. For an item that seems easy enough to find, it can be quite the opposite. I look for 3 types of white tops to incorporate into my summer style.  The faithful tee, the button down, and the feminine top.…

    Wedding Guest Attire

    It’s that time of year when the invitations are coming in.  Wedding season is in full swing!  That begs the question of- what do I wear?  The options are endless.  Dresses, jumpsuits, and skirts are all acceptable options.  Depending on the formality of the event, each can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion.  I personally love the idea of a skirt for a fun and playful alternative to a dress.  Especially if you have multiple events to attend.  A skirt is hands down the most versatile of the options.  By changing the top and accessories, you can create entirely different outfits. This gorgeous skirt from Alice and…

    Two Spring Trends in one!

    I am loving the shoes trends for this season. This might be my favorite selection in recent memory. Kitten heels are everywhere (a big yes for me!) and come in all sorts of candy colored pastels, white, and clear! Clear shoes? Yes, you read correctly. Clear shoes are a big trend this season. Actually not only for shoes but we are also seeing transparent bags and coats this season. Finally, you don’t have to cover up that great shirt you bought. Just wear a clear coat over it! Don’t have the right color shoes for your outfit? No problem, a clear shoe matches everything! Wishing you bought those nude pumps?…
